The Water Justice Hub’s mission is to respond to water injustice and to promote both ‘voice’ and truth-telling in relation to water. While the Hub will have a primary focus on Australia, especially justice for First Peoples, it will also respond to the global challenges of delivering ‘water for all’ or Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6.

The Hub brings together several initiatives. In terms of activities, the Hub will partner with First Peoples water researchers and communities and seek to leverage multiple funding sources (including philanthropic) to support a centre of excellence. The Hub would link to global water networks, such as (but not limited to) the UNESCO Water Chairs, Global Water Forum, and Geneva Actions on Human Water Security.

Beyond its capacity building and listening to the voices of communities on water, the Hub will also be a centre for water justice research. A five-year Australian Research Council funded research program began in July 2020 on water justice, water valuation and resilient decision-making. In terms of its research activities, the Hub plans to work closely with the Institute for Water Futures, at the Australian National University.
